Overwhelmed by the vast range of federal employment laws? The U.S. Department of Labor wants to help with a new feature on its Web site. The FirstStep Employment Law Advisor ( www.dol.gov/elaws/FirstStep) starts by asking questions about your business in order to determine which statutes apply. Then it links to online information about these laws, including the Family and Medical Leave Act, Immigration and Nationality Act, Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act, and the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts (the minimum wage law). If you need to write wage, benefits, safety and health, and nondiscrimination policies for your business, you can also consult the Employment Law Guide. In this new publication, the Labor Department gives basic introductory information on the agency’s main laws and regulations. The guide is available online ( www.dol.gov/asp/programs/guide.htm), or you can order a print copy by calling (866) 4-USA-DOL.
